Rask is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, FoxsportsFlorida's Steve Goldstein reports.

Rask, who will square off against Roberto Luongo on Tuesday, is past a migraine episode that he dealt with Saturday, as evidenced by his 30-save effort in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

Rask is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers,

DJ Bean of WEEI.com reports.

With the Bruins clinging to the final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference, it wouldn't surprise us to see Rask draw the start in each of the team's final six regular season games.

Rask's early exit from Saturday's game against the Rangers is being referred to as a migraine episode by csnne.com.

Initially, it was thought that Rask was dealing with a case of dehydration, but Rask -- who returned to make 30 saves in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over Carolina -- relayed that a migraine headache caused him to leave Saturday's contest early. While it's an issue that could conceivably crop up again for Rask in the future, he's past this episode and poised to remain busy down the stretch run for the Bruins, who are battling for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Rask stopped 30 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

Rask, who was forced out of Saturday's win over the Rangers in the second period due to a likely case of dehydration, bounced back nicely Sunday, in a game which saw the Bruins move three points ahead of the Senators (who have a game in hand) for the second wild card slot in the Eastern Conference. The B's have six more regular season contests and given how tight thing are for them in terms of playoff seeding, we wouldn't be surprised if Rask starts the remainder of the team's slate.

Rask -- who left Saturday's win over the Rangers in the second period due to a likely case of dehydration -- will start Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.

Prior to his exit from Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers, Rask stopped all 14 shots that he faced in 20:10 worth of action. Evidently, Rask is over his possible case of dehydration and thus slated to start Sunday, as well as the bulk of the B's remaining contests down the stretch run.

Rask was removed in the second period of Saturday's win over the Rangers due to a likely case of dehydration, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

Coach Claude Julien said that Rask was battling some "symptoms" of dehydration, but acknowledged that the goalie is fine and would be able to travel to Carolina with the club for Sunday's game. It's unclear at this time if Rask or backup Niklas Svedberg, who entered Saturday's game in relief, will start against the Hurricanes. Despite leaving early Saturday, Rask still managed to pick up the victory after he left with a 3-0 lead, with the Bruins ultimately prevailing with a 4-2 victory.

Rask left Saturday's start against the Rangers shortly after the start of the first period, likely due to an undisclosed injury, Joe MacDonald of ESPN Boston reports.

Rask was on his game prior to his departure, stopping all 14 shots he faced while his mates staked him to a 3-0 lead. Assuming that replacement Niklas Svedberg can limit the Rangers to two or fewer goals, Rask will still escape with the win, but that's probably the least of the Bruins' concerns right now. The team has yet to provide an update on the star netminder, and may not reveal further information regarding a possible injury until after the game concludes. The Bruins will play again Sunday in Carolina.

Rask will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

Rask has taken five consecutive losses while conceding three or more goals in three of those outings. Those kind of duds have been increasingly common this season for Rask, who has seen his ratios take a sizable hit from the lofty marks he posted from 2011-13. Even so, Rask is still sitting on a 2.34 GAA and .921 save percentage, numbers that still make him worthy of an activation most nights. He'll look to get back on the winning track against the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers, who will counter with Henrik Lundqvist in the net in his first game back from a neck injury.

Rask took his fifth consecutive loss Thursday against Anaheim, giving up three goals on 32 shots in a 3-2 overtime defeat at the hands of the Ducks.

A tough result for Rask, who carried a 2-1 lead well into the third period before giving up the game-tying goal to Corey Perry with 39 seconds remaining. He then proceeded to allow Ryan Getzlaf to score the winner in overtime. If they don't find their game, and soon, Rask and the Bruins could very well end up playing their way right out of a playoff spot; they're barely holding on right now.
